Formerly head of art & design at Hope University, Liverpool, he now resides on the Llyn Peninsula in north Wales - an area which has been central to his work in printmaking and painting. He was elected a full member of The Royal Cambrian Academy in 2001. Howards impulse to work with the coastal landscape of Wales is now ingrained-not from holding a mirror to the landscape but as a reaction to the first telling observations of what is seen and felt. He tends to look within most coastal landscapes but particularly around the coast of the Llyn Peninsula, for those elements of gesture and rhythm which can be further articulated in print and painting. Exposed underpainting helps build up a sensuous surface while the directness of each composition and a fairly tight palette clearly have their origins in his earlier experience of printmaking and sculpture.Underlying this crucial observation lies the bones of his work- the emotional and technical framework that holds each painting together. Principally working in oils and mixed media he has enjoyed numerous solo shows with work in both national and private collections worldwide.

The Dwyryd and Glaslyn Estuaries unite to form one of the most unspoilt large estuaries in Cardigan Bay. Ironically its present form really originates from the industrial boom in the nineteenth century and the rapid development of Porthmadog and Penrhyndeudraeth.
William Madocs built the cob, which cuts across the Glaslyn Estuary, in 1811 to reclaim a large portion of Traeth Mawr from the sea. The sand flats and salt marsh are important winter wildfowl feeding grounds.The area is renowned for Ospreys which have bred at Pont Croesor since 2005 and whose hunting activities in the estuary make an impressive spectacle to watch.
